Its marvelous landscapes drew in around 33 000 visitors and for 2013 an increase of 10% is expected.
The best time to visit this beautiful place is between June and October, and to get there you can take a flight from Lima to Puerto Maldonado or from Cuzco to Puerto Maldonado. To enter the reserve you must board a motor boat and then venture along its trails.
Its main attractions are Sandoval Lake, Cocococha, Sachavacayoc, Condenada I and II, and the Chuncho and Colorado clay licks. Here you can appreciate the beauty of the macaws, parrots and many other birds that come to the clay licks.
Another attraction of the Tambopata Natural Reserve is its diverse flora and fauna. To truly enjoy this place it is recommend spending at least three days, but if you wish to reach the Colorado clay click then you will need at least 5 days as it is located further away.
